Power Game - Poem by Ratnakar Rout

Time is running out
Everyone is in wait, impatient
The boss will arrive and give the advice
They will carry the commands and do their best
Message reaches the congregation time and again
Please have patience and wait further
Boss will definitely come and join the gatherings here
But time runs out and all attempts are going in vain
To contact the boss in person and know his preoccupation
Boss never comes still the waiting is on and goes on
Some are silent, someone dozes
And a few talks on this to that among themselves
The participants go berserk and become impatient
But to their utter surprise nothing happens
Nobody knows as to when the boss will come
Waiting never ends, Boss does not arrive
And indefinite waiting pains there everyone
When all had surpassed their limit of tolerance
Message reached, the Boss is embroiled with serious problems
As to whom he would choose to run the PRIs in forthcoming days
Seeing the wilderness of the congregation
Someone volunteered and asked every one
Gentlemen; please do have patience
And wait till boss gets out of the troubles
As you know the most difficult task of the Bosses
In this world is power distribution among the subordinates.
